My controversial post about the decline of Gothic Lolita fashion in Japan got many opinions. You made great comments about how the economy might a factor, as well as the natural cycles of popularity.

Wipe away that sad face. Laforet department store in Harajuku is still one of the best places for cute clothes, such as Nile Perch’s pastel fairy kei fashion.

Visual Kei bands are also disbanding in droves, but the Jrock presence remains strong in the Laforet basement. Bands often hold signings here…

Although many young Visual Kei bands have bitten the dust, the legends remain. Plastic Tree, Alice Nine and The GazettE are still active and strong.

I love browsing in the lesser-known boutiques for adorable accessories.

In the Laforet basement level, which holds all the underground fashion, there’s a relatively new accessories shop.

The furry tails and bright hair decorations are much more reasonably priced.

Fairy kei remains popular. Are you a fan of the 1980s pastel Barbie youngster style? What’s catching your eye these days?

I have more photos of all these stores and styles in my Tokyo shopping directory.

Lots of big announcements coming up… stay tuned!
